    Putting all of my various quality holsters in writing in a separate post made me wonder who on GT has been carrying the same set-up (same firearm model, same holster, same position) for the longest time. So, how long have you been carrying the same set-up? What is the carry set-up? I certainly will not win this race.

    G27 in a Ctac for right at 5 years now. I have added others to the rotation but the G27/CTAC combo is the standard.

    I am not going to win this, though. Some old guy with a 1911 in the same leather for the past 40 years will be along in a bit, I'm sure. We have some long time gun carriers around here.

    Since about the mid 80's till about 5 years ago I carried a Charter Arms Off Duty 38spcl 5 shot snubbie in a DeSantis 02 leather open top pancake holster for EDC. Still have both and stiil in very good condition. Gun shoots great with better sights than my S&W 642-2. Also carried spare ammo on speed strip in Safariland holder that mounts on belt and flips open. Holster has held up very well over the years. On occasion I also carried a 70 series full size 45acp government model in a shoulder holster or simple belt slide. When necessary I would occasionally carry a Seecamp .25acp in ankle holster or wallet holster in pocket. For the past few years I have switched to semi-autos with EDC being gen3 G19 in Don Hume H721ot or Safariland paddle holster. Frequently I will carry a G21sf in the same style Don Hume holster. When necessary I will carry a Ruger LCP in Hunter wallet holster or Galco ankle holster. I also put in a lot of range time

    Glock 19 in a pancake holster, at 3:00 o'clock, since 1999 or 2000. The current pancake holster I've had since 2003.

    G26 in a Alessi Talon Plus since 1998. Not sure this counts as I had to replace the holster with the thing after messing it up some years ago
    Sig P226 in a Uncle Mike shoulder holster since 1989.
    S&W 28 in a Uncle Mike shoulder holster since 1979

    G-26 in a FIST #1 ultra thin kydex AIWB for about four years. I always seem to come back to this set up. I do pack other guns at times but the baby glock in the thin kydex is the best deep carry combo out there.

    ...and just occasionally in a DeSantis ankle holster. Well dressed, indeed.

    I carried a .40 S&W in a Front Line (Israeli) IWB holster at either 12:30 or 3:00 for the better part of a decade.

    The longest set up I ever carried was a SIG P228 in a Galco holster on my right hip. Did this for about 16 months before changing my carry habits.

    I carried a Kahr MK9 in an MD brand beltslide for six years.
    Sold off the Kahr to an INGO member last year, lost the holster from that now defunct company.........

    It was a good setup, I just changed horses. I do that sometimes.

    I've carried in Crossbreed's for about the last 5 years. Always between a Glock 26 or the Kahr PM9. Once I found the crossbreed, I stopped messing around trying to find other holsters.
